A big thanks to all the awesome volunteers that came out for last weekend’s cleanup. The haul pulled in lots of debris, chiefly from the high recreational use in the area…a reminder for us all to pack it out at Short Sands! A special thanks and shout out to our sponsor ReRack of Portland, who stoked out the volunteers with a fun BBQ and raffle following the cleanup.
The 1st Annual Surfrider Summer Soiree put on by the Portland Chapter of Surfrider Foundation was held at the Holocene located on SE Morrison on Thursday, July 25th. Over 300 people attended helped to raise over $10,000 at the event, which included a surf movie, art show, silent auctions and raffles.
Kudos to all of those who stayed late after the Portland Chapter of Surfrider Foundation’s annual planning retreat this weekend to help clean up a beautiful little stretch of beach north of Cannon beach that needed some attention from the increase in marine debris.
Please join us on August 4 at 11:30 AM at the SE Portland Boathouse (East Side of Hawthorne Bridge) for a Hands Across the Sand paddle event on the Willamette River! Bring your kayak, SUP, canoe or surfboard or rent from Alder Creek Kayak who are offering a 50% discount on kayaks and SUPs to all event attendees (call to reserve ahead). We’ll meet by the Surfrider tent in the gravel parking lot next to East Esplanade (1515 SE Water Ave 97215). We’ll have a Surfrider table with info on Portland Chapter’s many volunteer opportunities. Hands Across the Sand is a grassroots event opposing offshore drilling and supporting clean energy. At noon, we’ll join hands in solidarity with events around the world and then go for a group paddle on the river!
